Group seeks help to purchase gifts


The staff and volunteers at Jewish Family & Community Services (JFCS) make holiday giving event-like with the same caliber of planning and logistics. Most people don’t realize that JFCS is one of the largest providers of children's holiday presents in Jacksonville each year. They give to foster kids of all races, religions and backgrounds, as well as the community’s few precious Holocaust survivors. This year, they’ll be gathering gifts for more than 2,000 children and families in need. However, they need the public’s help to achieve that goal. To participate, simply choose a wish list, then shop for someone who needs some holiday cheer. Or just donate online. For information, call 904-394-5714 or go to before Dec. 13.
